    worried

    Hai Momies,

    My 23 months old son seems down/unhappy one in a while.I have noticed it twice now.
    Is that normal for kids his age?

    Thanx for all ur time.

    Dear Engee,

    Rest a sure, this is very normal. My son just turned 2 and he is moody as ever. Have you checked if he is teething? This could be a cause. As a toddler becomes/wants to be more independent, he may get frustrated when he couldn't do/get something he wants. And my son always wants everything his way and it's always "read one more book", "a little more milk", "drink a little water", "no nappy change", "play here, play there", etc. If he doesn't get his way he'll sometimes throw a tantrum! If things get out of control, I use Time Out.

    Well don't worry, this is just a stage they all go through... Just be patient, keep calm, and don't lose your temper. If needed take some Time Out yourself.

    Thanx DHTY0,

    I understand when he wants his way.He screams and yells etc .But i manage to keep cool.I was worried abt his moodiness.But i guess its all a part of growing up then.
    Its just that i cudn figure out why he wud be sullen at times.

    Thanx again for ur time!

    everyone has good days and bad days... the difference is that your toddler does not have the "knowledge" or the "capability" of telling you why they are "not themselves"...

    even my 16 month old has bad days... it's perfectly normal...

    have you ever met someone who was ALWAYS happy?
